Movie Trailer: Alita Battle Angel

At long last, a trailer has shown up. I thought this was in development hell since this was planned since the year 2000. There was very little news about the production, and suddenly a trailer shows up. The movie is directed by Robert Rodriguez, well known for this work on Sin City, From Dusk Till Dawn and Spy Kids. Written by James Cameron, Robert Rodriguez and Laeta Elizabeth Kalogridis. Produced by James Cameron, well known for Avatar, Titanic, Terminator, True Lies and Aliens.

The movie is based on a manga called “Battle Angel Alita” or “Gunnm” (in Japan). Written by Yukito Kishiro.



Movie Trailer: Attack on Titan Trailer 2

I was able to watch the first season of Attack on Titan, I can truly say that I have not seen anything like it. The story is set in an alternate earth where there are unknown giants called Titans, roaming around and eating people. So the people have made giant walls to protect themselves from the attacks. This story centers around a character named Eren Yeager, whom his mother dies in front of him eaten by a titan. He grows up as man and vows to fight against titans.The basic premise is simple, something that we’ve generally heard before, but when you get to see the anime (I have not read the manga), I can assure you that it is so much different.

I am excited to see this movie.

Movie Trailer: Star Wars Teaser 2

It’s been a while… like a month since my last post. I didn’t realize that I have been that busy lately. But I know there were a ton of stuff that happened in the last month. And the latest one… the Star Wars The Force Awakens Teaser 2. It keeps on getting better.

Here’s the first teaser if you want to review it.

I can’t wait for Christmas!

Movie Trailer: Pixels

A new upcoming movie, which is based on a short film featured in YouTube, by Patrick Jean. I am so curious to see this movie, but I do worry that it’s led by Adam Sandler. I’m not much of a fan of his acting but I do credit his few movies that does stand out to me, like The Wedding Singer and The Longest Yard.

Here below is the original short.

More works by Patrick Jean at his website.

Movie Trailer: Avengers: Age of Ultron (Trailer 3)

The third and latest trailer from Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. The movie is looking more exciting, especially with a teaser of Vision at the end. I do wonder if Spider-Man will be showing up in the movie too.

Movie News: Bryan Singer’s Instagram Image. Oh yeah, it involves X-Men Apocalypse


What does this image tell you? This is Bryan Singer’s Instagram account. It says:

Some production art. #XmenApocalypse #GrantMajor I was a little busy but will continue to snap more.

At the moment, I have no idea, but it is exciting to see some progress in the movie. It looks like some kind of ship. I wasn’t really impressed with the after credits scene in Days of Future Past. But I do look forward to how they are going to make this story work. The character Apocalypse is supposed to be the known first mutant, born 5000 years. if you’ve seen the end credits scene, he’s the one with the blue skin, raising his hands. He’s supposed to be making the Pyramids. The new movie is supposed to be set in the 1980s.

X-Men Apocalypse is scheduled to be shown on May 27, 2016.

Currently Watching: Star Wars – A New Hope Revisited


I just saw Star Wars again, but for the first time. I watched a fan edited version, made by Adywan. The first time I saw this version, I was fascinated that the movie felt natural. Nothing out of the ordinary, but then again, it felt cleaner. The rough edges that can be seen in the original versions is pretty much gone.

There are a lot of elements that made it feel like a better film. A lot of the scenes are cleaned up which is the obvious part, there were also a lot of color corrections, to make it look more vibrant or consistent. George Lucas likes to cram a lot of things on screen, but here, most of those shots that felt crammed, were cleaned up. But not all of them, Adywan still kept some parts intact that made sense to the scene. He just made sure that it’s not too much.


The conversation between Obi-wan and Like while in Obi-wan’s home was edited to make the conversation more fluid and natural. The fight scene between Obi-wan and Darth Vader seems faster and longer, he also removed some of the sluggish movement that can be seen in the original version. All the lightsaber effects were redone. He also included music from Episode III just to mirror the fight between them, it gives a better continuity.

During space battle scenes, Adywan made sure that scene by scene makes more sense that before. Most of the special effects were redone, made sure that the background were consistent with the scene. What was amazing is that they even added more ships especially near the end of the movie in which there is a big battle between the rebel alliance using X-Wings and Y-Wings, while the Empire uses lots and lots of TIE-Fighters, it’s amazing to watch it all. It’s quite refreshing.


So much effort was put into this, that Adywan even used some of the audio from the radio drama to make things more clear, since radio dramas put more details into their conversation than the original movie. Or sometimes they are used to fix continuity errors.

There are so many edits in the movie that I really can’t tell them all. It’s just something you have to see for yourself.


Overall, the movie is fascinating to watch, if it’s your first time to watch Star Wars, it’s a good version to start from. If you just want to watch Star Wars all over again, this version is a must see. The fan edit by Adywan feels professionally done, it somehow respects the original version too.  The movie is not distributed easily though, you can only get it through torrent sites.

Look at this comparison!!!

I do look forward to watching the Empire Strikes Back now, it seems that it’s planned to be released sometime May 2015, and since it took Adywan to work on the first movie before releasing the second one, I presume that Return of the Jedi will take a lot of time before he’ll be able to release it.

Amazing work Adywan.

Currently Watching: Django Unchained


Django Unchained is a simple story about a man who wants to save his wife. The premise is very simple, but all the things that happens inbetween is what makes it a fun movie. (more…)

Currently Watching: Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back


I’ve seen the movie several times a few years back when it first came out, like 11 years ago. But it is nice to get back to it. I do kind of miss Kevin Smith movies that has that Jersey feel. Before watching the movie, you do have to be a fan of his movies because a lot of them do talk about things that previously happened. If you have seen them, you can appreciate the movie so much more.


Wreck-it-Ralph Trailer 2

Obviously I can’t wait to see the movie. Seeing lots of the video game characters in a real animated full length movie is so awesome. The new trailer even features Sonic the Hedgehog.
